First a few disclaimers - if you are a single or divorced parent, you probably don't have a choice between being a SAHP or a WOHP, (unless you are independently wealthy and then i'm very jealous of you!), most likely you have to WOH to be able to provide the basics for your children.

Outside of my dh and I, we are raising our children ourselves when it comes to the main decisions, values that we wish to impart on our children, morales that we wish to teach and so forth including finances....what we do have help with is executing those pieces....but none of those people help us make the decisions to begin with.

BOTTOM LINE is that the responsibility for how they've turned out is MINE (and ex and dh too).


what i think is parental responsibility might differ from somebody else but i do totally agree here.
